Slide 1

What does the author mean by a “damning critique”? What words or phrases could help you determine the meaning of “damning critique”?

In 1881 Helen Hunt Jackson produced a damning critique of American Policy towards the Indians which was called "A Century of Dishonor".

Slide 4

Why did people such as Schurtz, see “the Indians as standing in the way of the development of the country…”

“Liberals like Schurtz, Secretary of the Interior 1877-1881, saw the Indians as 'standing in the way of the development of the country, (they would) form part of it and (benefit) by it.”

Slide 5

What does it mean to be patronizing? Why did the authors consider the attitude of the reformers as patronizing and/or arrogant? Cite textual evidence to support your response.

RI1 , RI2 & L6

At best it was patronizing, at worst it was arrogant and gave new opportunities for the land grabbers to get their hands on lands which had been promised to Native Americans, 'as long as the grass shall grow'

Slide 6

Is the underlined quote an example of literal language or figurative language? How can you tell the difference?

RI1 & RI4

Slide 8

A. In this portion of the text, why is the word ‘friends’ in quotation marks?

B. What is the author actually saying about the ‘friends’ of the Native Americans?

RI4 & L5

Previous 'friends' of the Native Americans had seen the reservation system as the key to solving the Indian 'problem'. Now the reservation system was seen as its cause.

slide13

Assimilation

Slide 9

What did the authors mean by the Native Americans’ essence?

In what ways is a people’s culture part of their essence?

Although reformers like Pratt did not see Native Americans as racially inferior their perception of the inferiority of Indian culture amounted to the same thing, since their culture was part of the Native Americans' essence.

RI1, RI2, RI4 & L6

Slide 10

Paraphrase this portion of the text in your own words. What, exactly, is the author saying about the attitude of reformers like Pratt?

A. Explain what the authors meant by “…suppressing their …culture…”

B. Explain what the authors meant by “fragmenting their cohesion…”

C. Explain what the authors meant by “integrating them into the…racial melting pot.”

RI1 & RI2

The Reform Policy was designed to 'civilize' Native Americans by suppressing their communities and culture, and fragmenting their cohesion, thereby integrating them into the American racial melting pot. (WIDA –Visually supported language).

Slide 12

slide17

Assimilation

Slide 13

Provide an objective summary of this text. Express the essence of this text in one sentence.

The basic premise behind the new policy was that traditional Native American culture had no value. If they failed to understand this they would be forced to accept the superior culture of the Whites, and to be integrated into American society as individuals, instead of continuing to retain their separate cultural identity. This became known as 'assimilation'.
